Ed Sheeran Once Pooped His Pants on Stage: I Thought It Was a Fart!

Everybody poops!

It's safe to say that Taylor Swift won't be welcoming Ed Sheeran onto her "Style" runway any time soon. The British singer admitted during a recent interview that he actually pooped his pants once while performing on stage. And no, he wasn't wearing an adult diaper.

Sheeran, 24, revealed the smelly truth when he was asked if he's ever passed gas during a show. "All the time! All the time, all the time," he told Australian radio station Nova FM. "I actually misjudged a fart one time, which ended up being a shart."

He laughed: "It was like midway through a performance and I was really lively, and then halfway through I was like, 'All right I'm just going to stand for the rest of the performance, and hope it's over soon, and then go home and throw these trousers out!'"

The "Thinking Out Loud" crooner also has gone more than three days without changing his underwear. "[It was] when I was 18," he explained, "and living on sofas and sh-t."

Sh-t, indeed.
